Most people find themselves practicing careers dictatated upon either their parents, financial constraints, misleading advice among other unavoidable circumstances. It can be hard to act against your personality. A personality trait has an important bearing on ones performance in his or her career.

Let us consider the six personality traits developed by the famous researcher John L. Holland as early as the 1950s, Realistic investigative, artistic, social, enterprising and conventional personalities. Which trait best suit a particular career?

Critical parents are able to tell the personality traits of their children from an early stage and are thus able to direct their education to careers that best suit them. It is easy for you to know your personality, if not people around you can describe your personality.

If it is hard doing a personality test with a counselor is also good to discover yourself, though discovering yourself is more truthful.

• The social personality
These can work better in social environments say learning centers or hospitals, opting for a teaching course or nursing is a right choice. To most individuals of this personality trait, it comes naturally that they end up teaching going for nursing. Some unfortunately get lost in other professions.

• The artistic personality
This category prefers to work and develop their ideas independently; they think a lot in their solitude and develop independent ideas. These can be good writers, poets, graphic and web designers, animation or any career that calls for critical imagination.

• The realistic personality
It is easy for these to get things done as first as possible so long as equipments are available. In the working environment they find it easy to start up projects which require hands on work and get them done.

• The Investigative personality
Such personalities analyze issues on top of that find solutions to them. They are more interested in discovery of new things than being contented with the available. With such a personality you can be a good accountants or journalist.

• The conventional personality
These love to follow order, procedure rules and guidelines. The best careers for such personalities include Law, Bookkeeping, Pharmacy or Dental work.
